In order to meet the Massachusetts criteria for earning an entry level teaching certification, Whitney Thurrott completed coursework at WPI in conjunction with student teaching and observation hours at North High in Worcester, MA. From the end of January 2007 through the beginning of June 2007, Ms. Thurrott gradually assumed control over Mr. Richard Howarth's Biology II level 1 course and two Honors Anatomy courses. She used the techniques which she learned in courses through WPI and those learned via observations of Mr. Howarth to generate lessons and facilitate the instruction of material from the MA curriculum.
